Free parties ae probably some of the safest environments there can be, often the only risk being lumbering, violent cops turning up or taking too much of whatever and ending up in a ditch/the back of an ambulance. However they are essentially an environment of anarchy, a lawless space which does not mean that anything goes!
The rigs are working hard to create a safe space for us to have it in, but we are all responsible for each others safety at squat/outdoor parties, there are no cops, bouncers or fat venue ownes to sue for negligence. Look out for yourself and each other should be our mantra because we ain’t gt any else doing it for us.
To these ends the fine folk at Tribe of Munt have been involved in producing a leaflet highlighting the dangers of being raped whilst on drugs. They need donations and plan to distribute them in several languages over the Summer, they can be found at http://www.stay-safe.org.uk/
Which is not to be confused with http://www.stay-safe.org/ a similiar site with safety information and forums (and where we nicked the above pic fom)
void safety info – if you take GHB with alcohol (even small quantities) you are highly likely to become unconscious for several hours. This ain’t no k hole, the effects have been described as akin to being in a coma. Whilst you’ll probably come out the other side you won’t have any idea what’s gone down in the hours you’ve been out.
